A New Lease on Life

When this house was first listed, many considered it a total teardown. The house had serious problems, including leaking roofs, broken windows, and severely damaged interior finishes and fixtures. But the designers at Palo Santo Designs — an award-winning full-service architecture and construction company based in Santa Fe for more than 20 years — saw through the damaged and neglected facade and brought forth a new vision.  

The project involved the complete redesign and gut remodel of the nearly 3,000-square-foot home. Palo Santo’s total renovation focused on replacing and modernizing all aspects of the dwelling. The home got new stucco, finishes, and fixtures; new electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems; and a new roof. The design-build team handled all the architectural and interior design work, permit applications, and construction.  


During construction, the team discovered water damage and asbestos, which had to be professionally abated. It took careful attention to detail and the right professionals to remedy these problems. Once the hazards were remediated, Palo Santo was able to dramatically improve the flow of an outdated floor plan by opening load-bearing walls and reconfiguring bathrooms, the kitchen, and other living spaces. It also installed new hardwood floors, custom cabinets, quartz countertops, and marble tile.


The design-build team says the most gratifying aspect of the project was seeing beyond the old damaged surfaces into the property’s potential. The final product is just like new and offers a breath of new life that will last for years to come.
